Sally Pomme Clayton
Sally Pomme Clayton founded The Company of Storytellers with Ben Haggarty and Hugh Lupton in 1985. She has told stories all over the world, mesmerising audiences with unique and captivating performances. Her repertoire ranges from pithy jokes to wild romances and haunting myths, carrying the listener to somewhere else before bringing them back to themselves. She has been commissioned by The Royal Shakespeare Company and The British Museum, and collaborated with the composer David Bruce and The London Philharmonic Orchestra. As Artist in Residence at The Swedenborg Society (2011 – 2012), she created Night Visit, a daring new performance for adults. As well as her performative work, Pomme has written a number of children’s books including Greek Myths: Stories of Sun, Stone, and Sea (Frances Lincoln) with Jane Ray, and Persephone: A Journey from Winter to Spring (Frances Lincoln) with Virginia Lee.
